NECROPOLIS – 2000AD Progs 674-699

April – October 1990

I am no historian of 2000AD.  Yes I have them all, in boxes all over the house, and I love them dearly but I am no expert on the matter.  I simply enjoy reading them and the way they make me feel and the artwork and the wonderful stories and the places that they take me.

There are few stories that sum up 2000AD for me more than this one.  Necropolis.  I remember it so clearly from when I was younger and I think it is where I developed my love of the artwork of Carlos Ezquerra.  The way he painted Dredd and the dark judges thrills me now still and the story…oh god the story was amazing.  For me pipped by the “Apocalypse war” but only just.  Perhaps that’s because Apocalypse resonates more with me because I grew up in the eighties and the idea of Russia vs the west was so prevalent.

Seeing Mega-City one in flames was insane and the dark judges were terrifying and there was a real desperation as the story unfolded over 26 weeks.  Curiously though Dredd never appeared for the first dozen or so.

The photos are from the graphic novel collection, and I’ve posted a few pages and I was going to write more but I think I am actually going to go red it for a bit.  Just enjoy Carlos’ work…
